The Washington Nationals came roaring back in Houston on Tuesday night, forcing a winner-take-all World Series Game 7 for Wednesday night.
As with the other away games during the series, D.C.-area fans will be able to attend a free watch party at Nats Park as the team battles the Astros in Houston.
The general public will be able to watch the game broadcast on the NatsHD scoreboard from the seating bowl of Nats Park, and NATS PLUS members will get seating in the Delta Sky360 Club, PNC Diamond Club and Budweiser Brew House, plus free food and non-alcoholic beverages.
